The Surgery Center at Flagstaff Bone & Joint Is Now Offering OMNIBotics® Robotic-Assisted Total Knee Replacement

You are here

The Surgery Center at Flagstaff Bone & Joint announced that Amber Randall, M.D., and Brianna Patti, M.D., are now offering OMNIBotics, an advanced robotic-assisted treatment option for total knee replacement. This innovative total knee replacement solution is designed to relieve the pain caused by joint degeneration due to osteoarthritis. The intended benefits of this procedure include improved implant alignment with balanced soft-tissue structures, leading to increased patient satisfaction. The OMNIBotics procedure has demonstrated an overall patient satisfaction rate above 96%, compared to 81% from traditional methods.1 No other robotic total knee system on the market is able to assess both the static length and dynamic, real-time function of the knee’s ligaments. This is what sets OMNIBotics apart from other robotic-assisted procedures.

In the operating room in real time, the OMNIBotics procedure utilizes advanced software and robotic instrumentation to tailor each procedure to the patient’s unique anatomy. Patented OMNIBotics Bone Morphing™ technology helps create a 3D model of the patient’s bony anatomy, which the surgeon uses to visualize and plan implant positioning. The BalanceBot™ ligament tensioning device allows the surgeon to gather key information about the patient’s ligament and soft-tissue structures. This information is used with Predictive Balance™ software to optimize implant position to plan for proper soft-tissue balance.

The OMNIBot™ robotic cutting guide is then used by the surgeon to make the planned bone resections, helping to ensure accuracy, and the BalanceBot can be used once again to ensure the soft-tissue balance has been achieved. The surgeon maintains control and decision-making throughout the entire total knee replacement procedure, while providing a customized, patient-specific surgery. 

“The OMNIBotics technology is amazing,” says Amber Randall, M.D., total joint replacement surgeon at Flagstaff Bone & Joint. “We are able to literally morph and design a complete total knee replacement, including dynamic ligament function, virtually; then, once we are satisfied with the virtual result, we input the plan to the robot. The robot then implements our plan to ensure the most accurate result. No other robotic system is capable of real-time assessments like OMNIBotics. Others are based on static, non-dynamic scans done weeks before surgery. This technology allows Dr. Patti and me to offer patients the best possible result.”
